The mark has been made

The mark has been made
Now it is time for you to pay
For all that you have done
For all that has been
There is no escape
And you have no friends
I will make you suffer
I will make you hurt
You took all we had
And then some more
You broke this world
Now leave you fiend
Forever you are banished
To burn in the smouldering ashes of what you did
For god takes to pity on beasts
And you are no exception.
After what happened... there will be no retribution.
Cold and dead is what you are
No peace will ever befriend you
If it does it will be blackened by your evil
For you cannot love with no heart
Now, now the time has come
For see there is no sun
The sky has gone dark yet this is a happy day
Because you will die
Then all shall see
That this new world will be
The one without decay
This one will never fade away.
Where its children will not feed on its remains
Or horrify it with death and destruction.
This will be the perfect place
The quiet place...
Now with no further delay
Let your body die then decay~

    It reminds of Dante ... but more lyrical ... the imagery and desire blends into perfection ... the last line is so literal and yet above all so powerfully delivered. Keep writing.
